Bill Bailey & Michael Rosen head Beard of the Year 2020 Longlist

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers has announced the longlist for the Beard of the Year 2020.

The list consists of twelve names.

The first four listed have either won or featured consistently in the quarterly Beard of the Season votes held during the year as well as other regular polls. These four will feature in the ‘Beard-Off’ votes for Beard of the Year 2020 which will open on 1st December and close on 24th December. Beard of the Year will be announced on 28th December.

The remaining eight names will go to two deciding votes (four names in each vote) which will run for five days on 16th and 23rd November via Twitter. The top two from each round will join the first four to create a final list of eight on December 1st.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we’ve made some changes to the way the Beard of the Year vote runs for 2020. We’ve moved the vote to twitter where polls often have great engagement and instead of two polls which ran for many weeks we’re running a series of shorter more focused polls. May the best beards win!
